A viral video of a monkey recusing its baby from a well is winning hearts online. The stunning video comes a few days after another video showed a mother elephant helping its baby to climb over a road barrier. The heartwarming video was shared by India Forest Service (IFS) officer Susanta Nanda.

While sharing the clip, IFS officer Susanta Nanda said the love of a mother can make them the best commandos. And guess what, we couldn't argue but agree. In the 18-seconds video clip, a baby monkey can be seen crying inside a well as it tries to figure out ways to come out.
